Hi, I'm thinking about ordering a D7100 and, while I would love me some 70-200 2.8 or at least an 85 1.8G, my current budget restricts me to a kit lens. The 18-105 VR package is about 100 euros more expensive than the 18-55 VR II. My priority for the moment would be family portraits, so blurred backrounds are a must. I also thought about getting a much cheaper camera (D3100, D3200, D5100...) plus better primes, but I've heard the OVF is much smaller and darker. I know most of the technical...

Preface: I'm am a complete camera n00b. I know how to turn it on and take the picture but beyond that I am totally uneducated. I've been wanting to take a class but can't seem to find the time... Question: I want to buy my wife a new lens for her Nikon D5100. When we first got it, it came with a 18-55mm and a 55-300mm but the 55-300mm died on us (won't auto-focus, just clicks like the motor is stuck). The 18-55mm is great for everyday photos but she wants a zoom lens for vacations and events....

Hello, I had never run into this before: A D5100 with a Nikon 16-85mm lens, set on Auto-focus, "Single Point Auto Focus," and aimed at a white background (or a fog bank) was naturally unable to auto-focus. What I was not expecting was that it also would not take a picture - at least it would not do so on either AUTO or P modes. (I switched to Manual Focus, (Infinity,) and it worked OK.) Question: The part about not being able to autofocus I understand; but the part about not taking a picture...

I am a NOOB who is just getting started with photography and DSLRs. To get started I got myself a D5100 as a learning camera which came with a kit lens. My question is two part: Are kit lens absolute garbage and should not even be bothered with or they can be some sort of learning tools for cheap.? What is a recommended lens for me to get started. I mostly plan on shooting desert landscapes (I live in AZ), historical buildings and old artifacts like the ones in ghost towns and around...

Hi, my D40 is in need of servicing and repair, Nikon's estimate is in the region of £170 and they have offered me a choice of upgrades to either the D3100 or D5100. From what I have read the D5100 is the better investment however I am worried about whether or not my Tamron Lens is compatible with this body. I have a Tamron Lens AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II LD Aspherical [IF] MACRO ( Model B003NII) -...

Hi,Currently I own a D7000 and my girlfriend has my old D5100. We have only my old two lenses: a nikon 18-55 vr and a nikon 50 1.8We're both starting in photography and though we both love the 50mm I've found we sometime fight over the more versatile 18-55 as the 50mm (a 75 equivalent on our cameras) is somewhat limited in too many situations.I'm looking to buy another lens of similar quality so that we can then have our own "kit" lens (we'll fight over the 50mm I guess).I've found the...

I've got a couple of items on order. Samsung EX2F and a 52mm extension barrel to fit 52mm filters and lenses in front of the fixed lens on the camera. A knurled ring is removed from the base of the lens and the barrel is screwed in place. It permits the use of 52mm threaded filters and lenses. I am ready to order this kit this...

My last few batches of photos have had a vertical line separating two portions of the picture.  Is this a sensor issue?  What can I do to fix it?  The issue pops up every 10th image or so.
